Philly Triple Threat 2021 group is a very mature group. They understand the importance and value of defense and they utilize it very well on the floor. Their outstanding defensive play has led them to wins over teams such as YBR Elite, Team Izod, PSA Cardinals and the NY Gauchos. This year they plan to open eyes and impress this spring so look out for them. They are led by 6'3" elite PF Zaakir Williamson that can do it all on both ends. He excels at scoring on the block with his size and strength. Christian Clover is a dynamite scoring guard that can get buckets. Then you have bruiser Chris Evans and be on the lookout for Jalen Warley. This team will more than likely crack our preseason Top 10 when we release it.

16) Paul Pierce The Truth - This team is well coached because anytime you can pick up different guys from different areas and form them into a team in 1 weekend, then you know how to connect with your guys. They are very talented with guys like top 15 player 6'6" WF Johnny Juzang and 6'3" WG Dillon Depina. They both help this team compete but with every good set of wings you need a floor general and that is what 6'0" Nico Mannion is. He brings a unique swagger to this team with his crafty ball handling and his nice jump shot. Also be on the lookout for 6'4" wing Jalen Green who is definitely an emerging prospect on the West Coast.
15) B'more United Thrill - They host the best guys in Maryland and they represent their state very well. This past weekend they made a run in the Clash for the Cup but eventually fell to #3 Team Takeover-Black in the championship. They are led by a few guys but their stud is 6'2" WG Jordan Toles from Baltimore. He is a absolute workhorse and will never be denied when in attack mode. The other guys they have are all almost equally talented . Guys such as 6'6" WF/PF Justin Lewis, 6'6" PF Cameron Byers, 5'9" PG Rahim Ali Jr., 6'6" F Demon Clowney and 6'3" shooter Austin Allison. They are competing at a very high level right now and we look forward to see what else they will accomplish this season.
14) Indiana Elite 2020 - There aren't many people who know about this team but I'm here to give you some insight on them. Last year this group hung with the 2019 All Ohio squad for a bit before falling to them. They work very hard and execute really well. They have the states top center in 6'11" Mabor Mayen who is good and scoring inside and deflecting shots. On the wing they have 6'3" sharpshooter Garrott Ott-Large and he can flat out score. Then their best guy is 6'1" combo guard Brayton Bailey who also has a scoring mentality but is a pure stud and will be a very good high school player next year and this team will look to knock heads with coach Saunders G3 group this spring/summer.
13) Last year the God First crew won 30+ games vs. elite level 2020 teams and this year they look to earn some respect. They are also playing up this year in the 15U UA Association which will pay off well for them. They have their main guy in 6'3" SG Isaiah LeBlanc who is the best player in Texas 2020 class. He can give you 30 a game no matter who you are but he still is very unselfish and knows how to win games. Then you have 6'1" stud G Tramon Mark who is LeBlanc's partner in crime. This group also has good length in 6'7" Stayve Thomas Jr., 6'8" Emanuel Jones, 6'8" Terius Mathis, 6'5" Breon Thompson and 6'6" Nicholas Hale. Other solid guards include 5'10" Lejon Stewart Jr., 6'3" Adam Kanafani and 6'2" Christian Wright. The biggest impact will be 6'6" F JaKobe Coles that is just coming off an injury but will be a key piece to this team challenging guys like the Oakland Soldiers, Team Takeover-Black and the We All Can Go crew. Lookout for this sleeper group this year.
12) Mid Ohio Pumas - Almost every team has that one guy that they couldn't perform well without and 6'3" WF/PF Jack Pugh from Plain City, OH is that guy. He dominates the best players in the country every time out and is a stat sheet stuffer. 5'8" Matt Allocco is arguably the best floor general and shooter in the Midwest! He handles pressure and defends the top guards in the nation. He is the definition of tough. Then you have 6'0" F Chris Mayfield from Hilliard, 6'0" G Cameron McCreary and 6'1" G Logan Houle from Bucyrus along with 6'5" F Chance Mott from Mansfield, OH. These guys have some of the best chemistry in the country and will surprise some people this season.
